Description

This information is taken from the statutory List as it was in 2001 and may not be up to date.

GOODNESTONE THE STREET TR 25 SE (West side) 3/98 Gate piers about 20 metres south west and wall to church- yard of Church of Holy Cross GV II Gate piers. Early C18. Red brick in 2 shades, with stone cap. About 8 feel high, with plinth and stone ball finials (1 ball missing), the piers are about 10 yards apart and joined by the stone base to a missing iron rail, with 2 central steps. The whole originally formed a ceremonial entrance to the churchyard from Goodnestone Park. The wall, terminated at the west end by a pier with a ball finial, varies in height from about 6 feet to about 10 feet at the east end where it adjoins Lindley House, and is almost entirely mid C19, although there are traces of an earlier wall.
